SPRINGVILLE, NY [April 23, 2020] - Vibratech TVD announces the general release of a Severe Duty crankshaft damper for Cummins ISX / X15 engines.  Over-the-road truck operators and heavy duty diesel technicians requested the product to be developed after experiencing crankshaft failure and front gear noise under severe conditions while using the OE vibration damper.

The Vibratech TVD Severe Duty damper is more robust than the traditional Vibratech TVD Heavy Duty standard ISX / X15 replacement.  Diameter remains 14-3/4” while damping mass is increased 37% to 54.7 lbs.  Damper durability is also improved for continuous operations in high ambient temperatures above 100oF / 38oC.

Vibratech TVD recommends the Severe Duty damper if experiencing front gear noise, power output above 600 hp, and/or in long haul trucks with multiple trailers.  Other applications may include high temperature environments, logging, mining and construction.
